Amanda > Lilo and Shelfy

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 30, 2009 10:37:02 January 30, 2009 10:37:02

Five years ago Mean Girls was all about Lindsay Lohan. It’s now 2009 and Lindsay Lohan is too busy looking for a bump while Amanda Seyfried’s career is totally taking off. Lilo was once attached to the film adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s A Woman Of No Importance. Then she f-cked up and the role was said to have been snatched up by Shelf Ass Jessica Biel. Full Story

How cute is he??? Joshua Jackson hooked up with a fashion girl and since then, it’s been a wardrobe overhaul without losing his balls. I love. I die. His clothes, they always fit beautifully. He told me when I interviewed him at the Costume Institute Gala that when he and Diane Kruger moved in together he had to throw all his sh-t out. Full Story

15 and 40

They were actually born just 2 months apart. Can you tell? I can’t tell. One totally looks 15, which is her age. The other close to 40. Right? Check it out – Dakota Fanning last night at the Hollywood premiere of Push, refreshingly fresh-faced and age appropriately pretty and then old hag Ali Lohan in Times Square for some kind of photo shoot looking more and more every day like a carbon copy of her wreck of a sister. Full Story

Keep the shoes on

Still tacky as sh-t but definitely an improvement on her diaper jeans from the chili fair – this is Porny performing in Charlottesville, Virginia yesterday in leather pants and a black blazer. But then she took her shoes off. And the sight of a woman, in leather pants and bare feet…it’s just so low classy, non? It’s just so f-cking base. Full Story

Jolie Gush

The Jolie was centre stage yesterday in Tokyo at a presser for The Changeling and like the last time she wore grey, as you can see, totally gorgeous. Also putting to rest the speculation that she keeps wearing oversized togas on awards show red carpets because she’s trying to hide her alleged super skinniness. Full Story

Look good, pose hard

SnapFace Renee Zellweger was at Letterman last night promoting her latest New In Town which, unfortunately, is getting totally eviscerated by critics. Add to that the fact that it’s Super Bowl weekend and Snappy’s chances at owning the box office on the strength, or weakness, of a formulaic rom-com (redundant?) are not good. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Another night, another tv show missed. Sigh. Can’t wait to get back to my DVR. Don’t tell me what happened on Lost! And thank you for all your messages re: Project Runway Canada! Am excited to watch online this weekend.

But do you hear that? It’s getting louder.

The Slumdog backlash is building momentum. Behind the scenes, the other films, the other studios, the other players, they don’t mind the backlash. But the backlash is there. With three weeks to go and Academy members voting in earnest, this race is getting more dramatic every day and there are, certainly, legitimate reasons for some of the criticism mounting for the movie. But it’s the coincidence or conspiracy curious timing of the attacks that is most telling. Click here for more on the politics at play. Thanks Katie!

It’s Thursday – am online all day apart from the speaking engagement at the Canadian Marketing Association this afternoon. So nervous. I’m a nervous vomiter. This might be too much information but if you’re reading distraction today, now you know why.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Posted late in the day yesterday – Scarjo’s massive ego, Granny resurfaces, and Size 2 Simpson. Scroll down to get caught up.

Granny Sweet 16

Thanks Anna for sending this. I love it so much. Have you ever watched My Super Sweet 16? There have been times when I’ve had to self flagellate in order to stop from wasting an entire afternoon on a marathon of 16s on MTV. It’s the worst! But fascinating as hell. The premise: rich parents plan the most ostentatious sweet 16 party ever for their kids, trying to one-up everyone else who’s ever been on the show. Full Story

Slipping away?

Oh Mickey Rourke… He’s still a contender for sure for Best Actor but this… this is not good. So you must have heard by now – rumours circulated that he and Evan Rachel Wood hooked up after the SAGs. That they were making out and then disappeared upstairs. Ew. Of course everyone bought it. Full Story

Hot Dad not Brad

True. Brad Pitt is totally hot when he’s with his kids. There were some photos a while back of him with his boys Maddox and Pax in Venice or something… adorable. But he’s not the only one. The other ones are just underrated. Let’s give some love then to Liev Schreiber. Here in LA with his firstborn – so blonde! – hanging out having a man moment while mom presumably is tending to his younger brother. Full Story
